Rollover crash on eastbound I-84 temporarily closes lanes, one driver cited

A rollover crash on Interstate 84 on Monday morning caused traffic delays during rush hour near the Overland Road exit in eastbound lanes, according to Idaho State Police.

According to ISP, the 8:41 a.m. crash happened when a vehicle driven by David Kates attempted to cross multiple lanes in an effort to reach the off-ramp, but struck a van on the way. The van, driven by William Wood, rolled off the right shoulder of the road.

ISP said no injuries were reported.

Kates was cited for inattentive and careless driving. Lanes were temporarily blocked for about 30 minutes.
